This is a decent beer with reasonably good taste character (not great) but sub-par aroma.

Pale orange copper, small off-white head steadily shrinks to thin, nice lasting veneer that slowly shrinks to foamy ring.

Aroma is wet singed barley, hints of meaty gravy and cheese.

Taste is better than aroma, spritzy meaty toasty barley, hints of fruit skins and woody herb, hint of cheese, sweet-bitter are pretty well balanced, aftertaste of white bread and hint of cheese. Feel is nice, taste pretty enjoyable but not great.

pours out a murky amber colour with a thin head and thin lace. muddled malt aroma, some juice and fruit with some other sugary malt flavours. doesn't smell like a lager. the taste is a bit better than the other game on concoctions sampled so far...the malt bill is a little more direct and gives off your typical amber/red flavours. it still is a bit messy, adjunct driven and yeasty, though not so offensive in nature. medium bodied; chalky mouthfeel. drinkability is below average.

overall i would say that this has the same characteristics as the other game on offerings. they need to be cleaned up. not recommended.
